Evergreen Oil Files for Chapter 11 Protection

Evergreen Oil Inc., along with its parent and sole shareholder Evergreen Environmental Holdings Inc., filed for Chapter 11 protection in California bankruptcy court on April 10, 2013.  


As most in our industry know, Evergreen is one of several waste oil collectors and re-refiners in the US. The company operates a rerefinery in Newark, CA. This facility has the capacity to produce 0.8 TBD of Group II base oil.


Evergreen attributes the decision to file for Chapter 11 to a number of issues, including a fire that severely damaged some of its operating equipment in 2011. As a result of this, and other issues, the company's cash flow was unable to sustain its operation.

It should be noted that Evergreen Oil had also been under a good deal of scrutiny from environmental groups over the past few years. An example of some of this pressure can be seen at NewarkPatch.     


Woodford Oil Expands Operations and Product Offerings with Acquisition of Elite Petroleum


Woodford Oil Co., headquartered in Elkins, has acquired the lubricants business of Elite Petroleum, Inc. of Danville, KY. This acquisition represents another confident step toward Woodford's growth plan, which includes gaining new territory for marketing and distribution. The addition of Elite Petroleum's marketing area enables Woodford to expand its current distribution network and marketing capabilities into Central Kentucky and beyond.


With a larger business territory, Woodford can extend its products and services to even more businesses and consumers. "With every new venture, Woodford has two essential criteria: quality and growth. By acquiring Elite's lubricants division, we get both. Our expanded operations and offerings help us maintain our position as leaders in the industry," said Woodford Oil's Vice President, Scott Kiser.


Strengthening the acquisition, Woodford says, is Elite Petroleum's longstanding, reputable history in petroleum marketing. The management and employees of Elite bring a vast knowledge of the lubricants industry and have top recognition within the industry, achieving Chevron Signature/ 1st Source Marketer status every year since the program's inception.


About Woodford: Woodford is a locally owned distributor of fuel and lubricant products. Headquartered in Elkins, WV, Woodford Oil serves West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Click for more.
